What we do

Aquaculture and biodiversity

Aquaculture has developed considerably in recent years. Our group investigates the biological, productive and economic aspects required to achieve an efficient and sustainable supply of fish.

Animal nutrition

Animal nutrition is the main cost of livestock farms and has important implications in productivity, animal welfare or the environment. Our research focuses on understanding and optimising animal nutrition.

Animal breeding and genetics

Genetics is a fundamental basis of animal production. In this research line we focus on the genetic analysis of meat quality characteristics, as well as other reproductive traits and the preservation of animal genetic resources.

Animal production systems and technologies

This research line focuses on developing and evaluating livestock production systems, so that they take profit of the genetic potential of animals. Our aim is to optimise resources, ensure product quality and minimise environmental impact.
